Michael Connelly set tongues wagging earlier this month when he divulged details about the upcoming spin-off of his hit series, “Bosch.” According to the best-selling author, the new show, which will see titular character, former LAPD detective Hieronymus “Harry” Bosch (Titus Welliver), working as a newly-minted private detective, is either keeping the same name as its predecessor or will tentatively go by “Bosch P.I.” Pegged to air on Amazon’s sister streamer, IMDb TV, filming is already underway with a first season storyline inspired by Connelly’s 2016 novel, “The Wrong Side of Goodbye.” Calling the tome’s use as source material a “no-brainer,’ he exclusively told Newsweek “It’s very much one of my favorite books; it might be my favorite book because I finally get to the thing that inspired me to be a writer and that was the private eye novels of people like Raymond Chandler, Ross Macdonald and Dashiell Hammett.”
Along with Harry, the spinoff will also heavily feature Bosch’s daughter, Maddie (Madison Lintz), as well as his nemesis-turned-associate, Honey “Money” Chandler (Mimi Rogers). One character who will definitely not be making an appearance (unless it’s via flashback)? Lawyer J. Reason Fowkkes (Spencer Garrett), who (spoiler!) meets his demise in “Bosch’s” final season while attempting to kill off the witnesses to his client Carl Rogers’ (Max E. Williams) insider trader scheme.
Sadly, that means his glorious house won’t be making an encore cameo, either.
Located at 511 S. Muirfield Rd. in Hancock Park, the striking three-story structure is one I’ve long been familiar with thanks to its glorious architecture and prolific filming resume. (Please remember this is a private home. Do not trespass or bother the residents or the grounds in any way.) A 2017 listing, in which it was offered for rent at a whopping $21,000 a month, notes that it is one of the most beautiful homes in the area and that is not hyperbole.
